Today's Winnipeg Free Press Editorial hit the nail right on the head: Canadians have the right to universal healthcare, but "educare" is not a fundamental pillar of our society. Education costs money -- money that the provincial public sector simply doesn't have. What's worse, quality education costs even more. Just ask students at the University of Manitoba, who have seen first-hand the impact of a decade-long tuition freeze -- larger class sizes, overloaded professors, crumbling infrastructure... That engineering students at the UofM are pushing for an end to tuition freezes should say something to all of us -- there is more than one side to the tuition debate. There is more than one side to the student body. These folks are not South Winnipeg elitists, either. They care about accessibility, but feel that it shouldn't come at the cost of quality. Like their counterparts in the UofM Law faculty in 2003, the Engineering students' plan includes using a portion of the fee hikes to fund bursaries for less-fortunate students. A red tory solution to rising tuition costs if I ever heard of one. Far better than blind, socialist tuition freezes.
